How's the top holding up? Is that a three bar? Do you fold it bow or aft when down? Any advice would be appreciated. I have a prostar 205 open bow.

I would say it's a 'mixed bag'. After using it a half dozen times, I came to realize it was too wide so I decided to take a 6" section in the middle of each top bar. Then spliced them together. The new width was great but still need to get a more permanent splice in place.

Other than that, the only other thing is I wish I would have put some clear or white vinyl down before installing the anchor hardware to the fiberglass. The hooks on the straps tend to leave marks on the gel-coat. Looks kinda ****ty.

When not in use, I go 50/50 on laying it fore or aft depending on how many people are with me.

However, I will say after further investigation I kinda wish I would have gone with the OEM Mastercraft bimini just cuz of the more integrated mounting points and hardware.

Good luck...
